Saw my other instructable and want to know how to solve the Rubik's cube faster

this instructable will teach the first part of the Fridrich Method known as f2l witch stands for First 2 Layers.

The Fridrich Method was created by Jessica Fridrich to solve the Rubik's cube faster by solving the first two layers then the top.

if you don't already know how to solve the Rubik's cube then I highly suggest that you check out my instructable on how to solve a Rubik's cube

Some of you may be wondering why i wanted to learn to solve the Rubik's cube, well I am very big into math and I am Very good at memorizing things in fact I have an IQ of 120 but you don't need a high iq to learn how to solve the Rubik's cube. I learn the beginners method last Christmas when I was bored on Christmas break and wanted something to do. It only took me a week to learn to solve it, but it wasn't like I was doing it for a week straight 24 hours a day, in fact i probably spent an hour a day max.

But anyways About a month ago I was bored again and saw my Rubik's cube sitting on my Desk just begging me to solve it, so I did but it took me about 5 minutes because I haven't solved it in a long time, I rely wanted to be able to solve it in a minute or less so i did some Google searching and found a bunch of different speed cubing methods. I found one that rely stood out because it was a simple concept but it was also effective. It took me about 2 weeks to learn the speed cubing method known as the Fridrich Method and i can now solve the Rubik's cube in a minute. That is my story of learning how to solve the Rubik's cube.

For step one you need to get the cross like in the beginners method but don't get the corners yet

<p>Horrid grammar and clarity for someone who brags about their IQ.</p>

<p>Ikr. I was about to comment the same.</p>

HAHA A WEEK (an hour a day)... It took me 2 days or 3 hours total to learn the method on the rubiks cube website just recently. Im surprised i even learned it, but now im trying to learn a faster way. My fastest time is 2:45 which is fast enough for me

<p>If your IQ is so good show it by making sense of your directions and actually coming up with a decent method. </p>

<p>I'm confused</p>

Can u please elaborate which side to keep up/ down. Makes no sense

Makes NO sense

<p>This makes no sense to me. I don't understand what you mean by "a bar with the color of the cross and colors on the side." I don't know what I'm trying to solve there. Can anyone help?</p>

<p>Try this video. It makes much more sense. </p><p>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ROPpB90cbj0</p>

<p>It increased my time </p><p>my best earlier - 39 sec</p><p>now - 1 min 15 sec</p>

<p>It increased my time </p><p>my best earlier - 39 sec</p><p>now - 1 min 15 sec</p>

It took longer than my method. It said "faster" so I was really expecting it. You are big in math, have an iq of 120, good at memorizing, and took u a week. It just took me 3 hours to learn Rubik's(i was 12 that time), but this took me a day.

<p>Ok, so I got the fishy on the top in red... but why are we suddenly working with white? Is that the bottom or the side that you get the two blocks into? and does it matter if moving the cube rearranges the red blocks at any point?<br><br>I can solve the cube, but only in the 3 layer method, I'm trying to make sense of this "short cut"...which always turns into a "long cut".</p>

Good

Where's part two

<p>I like this instructable ,but I want to learn BLINDFOLDED formula to solve it .Can you send me that please ( if you have)</p>

<p>Maybe it would be easier to understand if you marked the piece we want to move and where we want it.</p>
